Long abstract:

The Leuphana Concert Lab is a transdisciplinary teaching & learning project at Leuphana University cooperating with scientific and artistic partners. Students and researchers from all faculties co-creatively develop projects with musicians from both Global North and Global South to address Global Challenges from a transdisciplinary perspective. It pursues the goal of encouraging students from all faculties to reflect on socially relevant topics through the medium of classical music and to bring them to the region.

We are especially interested how to integrate the topic of “What role for the arts in transdisciplinary collaborations” on the level of teaching and learning and are currently developing several modules for the complementary study programme. These seminar offers always bring together students and teachers from different study backgrounds with musicians. They center on one specific topic per semester (e.g. Societal Cohesion) and discuss disciplinary approaches and the specific potential of the Arts in both addressing and translating those topics for an audience.

Several seminars and concert activities with different artists have been implemented since the project started in 2023. Our accompanying research investigates how sense-making and sense-giving processes occur between the students, artists, and the audience. At the conference in Amsterdam, we would like to present the first research results, and discuss ways of aligning artists, researchers, and students to approach today’s Grand Challenges.
